PAPER SUBMISSION:

Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper describing original,
unpublished research with at most 12 pages (in LNCS style or similar).
Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix to be
read by the program committee members at their discretion. Electronic
submissions should be formatted in postscript or pdf. The proceedings will
be published in Springer's LNCS series. Simultaneous submission to other
conferences or workshops with published proceedings is not allowed. See
the conference website at  http://www.lsi.upc.edu/~wea/
